Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR] 46
Description:

In line with the increasing use of empirical methods in Cognitive Linguistics, the
current volume explores the uses of quantitative, in particular corpus-driven,
techniques for the study of meaning. It shows how these techniques contribute
to the core theoretical issues of Cognitive Semantics as well as how they inform
semantic analysis. The research presented in the volume constitutes an
important step towards an Empirical Cognitive Semantics.
